Every year a list is compiled of the most popular names chosen for babies and it's curious to note how many names become widespread.

It's something that has become noticeable when scanning a Women's National League team-sheet each week.

Upon further investigation, we were able to narrow down the most commonly-used first names in the League this season.

9 – Aoife
7 – Chloe, Lauren, Niamh
6 – Ciara, Jessica
5 – Sinead
4 – Katie, Leah

Interestingly, both Amy and Niamh were the most popular names in the League's inagural season in 2011/12 with 8 players each having the same name.
